MCTXSheriff Identifies Human Remains Found in the Sam Houston National Forest
On February 7th, 2023, at around 12:00 pm, MCTXSheriff deputies responded to the Sam Houston National Forest near Flamingo Lakes and Highway 149 in reference to the discovery of possible human bones. A worker with TxDot made the discovery and called law enforcement.
Montgomery County Homicide/Violent Crimes Detectives and Crime Scene Investigators responded to the scene and conducted their investigation. It was determined that the remains were in fact, human, and samples were sent for DNA and dental record analysis. It is with a heavy heart that we report dental records have confirmed that the human remains are that of missing person Felicia Johnson of California. Our hearts go out to the Johnson family and friends and we hope this brings them some closure.
Ms. Johnson was a victim of a homicide in Houston, TX, in 2022, and all inquiries regarding that case and this case should be directed to the Houston Police Department.
